Wyoming GOP pays IRS fine
The Wyoming Republican Party paid the Internal Revenue Service $12,490 in penalties and interest for
lapses in paperwork. The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/ryZygE ) the
amount paid is noted on a GOP account balance sheet dated Nov. 10.
GOP Chairwoman Tammy Hooper says missing paperwork from 2008
included W-2s and forms necessary to maintain the party's status as
a nonprofit political organization.
She said the paperwork was submitted in September when the IRS
notified the party of the missing forms and steps have been taken
to prevent similar lapses.
The paper reports that the party paid the IRS $12,490.63
sometime between July and October. In February 2010, the Federal Election Commission fined the
party $1,500 for improperly reporting more than $129,000 spent just
before the 2008 general election.
